Elbow nerve decompression

Nerves that are compressed in the area surrounding the elbow (ulnar or cubital tunnel and radial tunnel) cause numbness and/or pain in the fingers. Decompression provides relief (transposition of the cubital nerve, decompression of the posterior interosseous nerve).

EMG (electromyography) is a test that helps to determine the severity of the problem and make an enlightened decision concerning the need for surgery.
